Description

The New York Times bestselling collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award­–nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.”

At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.

With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial “dating experiments” (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.”

Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

    Great book. Anna Kendrick is so real and makes you feel that you know her. I enjoyed every second of it. If you haven’t read it, read now.

    After a week of binge drinking with her, I feel this book is exactly the information you'd receive after penetrating the social awkwardness that seems to be, Anna Kendrick. So much admiration for trying to "keep it real"! I hope she stays scrappy and non-starry, but starry! Fun read!

    I loved reading Anna Kendrick's debut book. She makes us humanoids feel like we are not the only imperfect, crazies on the planet. She writes in a very relatable style and it's a laconic read. I'm really only writing this review because I hope she reads this! Awesome storytelling AK!

    Really enjoyed this book. It's refreshing to read about an actress who is down to earth, self depreciating and self aware.
